  1. You could cover the entire upper walkway at Bleak Inslet with cured timberwolf pelts...
  2. great shot of that arrow in flight! from that angle I'm thinking a good shot to the head. how did it all end up?
  3. no, alas, you cannot. I've tried many times with a variety of hides, to no avail. the only thing that i really haven't tried is to maybe get just a portion of a hide to cover just a part of the hole and then kinda patch multiple hides around the opening. dont know if that could work, but maybe somebody could try it the next time they find themselves up on TWM and let us all know? hint hint, lol
  4. Yes, I think it is certainly doable but as you pointed out @MrsHoneypot, if you deliberately travel without a sleeping bag you probably should plan your movements wisely. I guess my question is why? Considering the basic bag only weighs in at kilo, I think there are quite a few other things that you can shed from your inventory to drop the equivalent in weight. For example, check out the amount of matches you are carrying. I typically end up with a ton of match books, both wooden and paper, not to mention 2-3 strikers and maybe even 2-3 magnifying glasses. Considering I almost never use the magnifying glass, for me that is just dead weight. same goes for all those matches. by the time i put 20 or more boxes of matches in a storage container, I've sometimes easily reduced my carry weight by over a kilo or more. Now on the other hand, if you like playing the game with a self imposed hardship like that, game on! on a side note, you may be onto something. This would make a pretty good achievement type of challenge mini game imho. You don't get a bag when you spawn and you have to sleep in at least two or more beds on each map and you have to cover the whole island and you only have a limited time to do it. what do you think?
  5. For those of you whom have completed this challenge, let me say congratulations. I've attempted it on a few occasions only to find that I lack the tenaciousness needed to complete the task. So, I am curious, what's the least amount of effort required to achieve this accomplishment? ie, do you have to clear all the shadow from the map or could a player only sketch those areas that pop up on the hud while leaving splotchy areas hidden? Also, how much charcoal did it take you to finish? Any advise you have that your willing to share would be greatly appreciated!
  6. where do the missing arrows go? I thought I had heard something about the recent updates that fixed loosing an arrow when the animal died on top of it. Supposedly the arrow now can almost always be recovered. For the most part I've found this to be case, especially in those cases where I get an instakill on deer for example and almost always on a wolf bleedout situation. but the last two times I tangled with the bear in particular, I shot him three times during one encounter and twice on another encounter. Both times I only recovered a single arrow. net loss of three arrows out of 5 fired. Both times they dropped not too far from where I shot them. I combed the area on multiple occasions over the next few days just to see if maybe they fell out or whatever, but no joy. just curious if anybody else getting similar results in your gameplay?
  7. When you overnight in the cannery workshop, you might as well make the best of it. Here's my version of a raised platform bed! I cured a deer hide up on the wall to create nice soft headboard and the floor is carpeted in cured hides which sure keeps the chill off the floor at bay. The bearskin bag is super comfy, I think it adds +10C when you use it.
  8. where did you find all the carrots to be able to see this well in the dark? Damn son, you got good eyesight!
  9. Surprise, but yes you can, although there apparently is currently a bug that prevents their use. You can find "shelves" in a few different locations, most of the fire lookout towers for example, the farmhouse in Milton has one that can hold two rifles as compared to just the single display in the Cannery Cabin. They are few and between... I really wish they had one in the Mountaineer's Lodge on TWM. If that were the case, I'd probably never leave that map...
  10. Yeah, your right, @UpUpAway95, a workbench would be the cat's meow. But like @ajb1978 pointed out, may as well make dual use of a trip to the cannery. Thanks for mentioning that 6 burner stove by the way. Cook a whole deer over there and prep liters of water in just a few hours, got that little sleep pad by the stove to for convenience. @wizard03, I did find out one thing about the interior today, however that really disappointed me. The gun rack over the fireplace won't store the rifle on it, but you can break it down. I just got back from an over nighter to the cannery just to retrieve the rifle so I could hang the damn thing up in my new digs. And No! Display denied! Definitely disappointing although not a deal breaker. I laid the rifle on the mantle for now...
  11. Right? I was thinking something just along those lines as well. More so, finding the corpse of a dead player who died by wolf attack and collecting all their useable gear!
  12. Blue Thunder with Rory Schieder and Malcolm McDowell? The JAFO was the copilot if memory serves?
  13. Having completely traversed the new map and living long enough to tell the tale, I am really liking the Cannery Workers Residence as my base camp. Once I checked it out thoroughly, I found it packed with so many amenities, that I now believe it's probably the single best base camp in the game. You may not agree with me, but consider these features. First off, I have not encountered a single wolf anywhere near the area. Yeah, you can hear them howling on occasion, but out of sight is out of danger. There is a bear cave with an active bear just a little ways away, but he is easily dispatched and when he isn't around, you got plenty of time to gather firewood. Fuel for heating and cooking is relatively abundant. The adjacent burned out cabin is a replenishing source of 4-6 lumps of coal every few days. Same goes for sticks and branches which replenish as well every few days. There's a little trail that leads up to the landslide area that is fairly secluded from wildlife where you can harvest both fir and cedar limbs to further stockpile your firewood supply. In terms of food supply, there is a rabbit den near the bridge just down from the landslide which is a good place to set up snares. There are some wolves far enough away on the other side of the bridge, but you can usually see before they can see you. Far enough away for you to avoid them in most cases. I usually only see one wolf patrolling the ice, but sometimes there are two, but never more than that. Closer to home though, is the fishing shack right outside the cabin. I've laid in a lifetime supply of fishing tackle and spend a few hours fishing every few days. Side benefit to all that fish is I wont be running out of lamp oil anytime soon either! Probably my single most favorite thing about the place is the fact that I can get up on the roof of cabin and clean the chimney!
